Well hello FIRST PUBLICATION DAY for Curious Fox Books – how lovely to have you here at last!
I’ve been working up to this date since I started working with the Curious Fox team 5 months ago and we’re all so excited to have our first books out there in the great wide world.
For The Diamond Thief by Sharon Gosling we have got loads of exciting promotional activity launching this month including a 3for2 promotion with Blackwells, an author events tour, a feature in the Guardian about Sharon’s top ten steampunk books, competitions running on Booktrust and LoveReading, and, oh, well, heaps more. We’ve launched a video review competition with reading groups across the country which is getting a great reaction – if you’ haven’t entered yet, please do (more info here: http://www.curious-fox.com/win-a-ipad-mini). We’re also working with some of the most lovely and influential bloggers in the books world who are busy reading and reviewing The Diamond Thief. You should check out their brilliant blogs at these links:
We LOVE LOVE LOVE The Diamond Thief, it’s a cracking read with pace, adventure, laughs and loads of action.
Today we’re also celebrating publication of the first books in our HYPERSPACE HIGH series. Funny, exciting, and un-put-downable, these books will hook any boy aged 9 – 12 years. WHsmith currently have a Buy One Get One Half Price on the first books in the series, Crash Landing and Frozen Enemies, so get yourself down to your local WHSmith branch to pick up your copies!
If you’ve read a Curious Fox book and love it, please let us know, we love to hear feedback, and please write a review online too (Amazon, Good Reads, your own blog site, twitter – we’re grateful for all your support!).
And here’s thanks to everyone who has got us to this exciting moment, the editors, the agents, the authors, the booksellers, the marketeers, the designers, the librarians, the teachers, the parents and mostly, of course, the young people reading our books.
